My team had been working on improvements on UX and interface of GCSs. You can read about our research on Beatriz Palmeiro's blog.
We would like to share with you some of the work we've done.
Compass Calibration Redesign
Based on our previous research, we decided to redesign the compass calibration process:
Our intention is that this project will be a reference for GCSs. In this document we document the process, the flow and give guidelines for the UI.
Please feel free to make comments and suggestions, and contact us if you have any questions.
We hope this material is useful for any of you guys working on GCSs.
@all The assets and specification to implement the compass calibration redesign we are suggesting are available here: https://github.com/Dronecode/UX-Design/tree/gh-pages/Reference/Comp...
Please, let us know if you have any suggestion or question around this.
@Nikola Rabchevsky you can find more details about that here: http://guludo.me/posts/2016/05/27/compass-calibration-progress-with...
That's quite intuitive but how does actual matrix get calculated?
From a user's perspective, it is interesting to see the ui analysis and design process. Thank you for sharing.
Great Job. This is one of those things that people say. " Well that is obvious, that is simple", but they only say that once someone has figured out how to do it. Nice work :)
The qgroundcontrol compass calibration that already exists is hugely improved (for non-onboard calibration), so much easier to use. Looking forward to seeing this, also for the ui redesign, looks nice. Very interesting to see the process of the ui analysis and design, thank you.
Really Nice UI representation of the geodesic onboard compass calibrator that's in ArduPilot.
Love this! Really insightful rethinking of a chronically difficult UX problem. Bravo!
